Course Description: This course offers a study of human rights literature. The course contextualizes the concept of human rights in a specific historical setting, and analyzes how literature and the German concept of Bildung contribute to the development of human rights. Students review literary theory, as well as participate in and take critical positions in the debate on Bildung. The course explores how the subject of "human" is represented in human rights and how this subject partly stems from eighteenth and nineteenth century literature and the development of subjectivity in the literature. Students read texts including INVENTING HUMAN RIGHTS by Lynn Hunt, and HUMAN RIGHTS, INC. by Joe Slaughter. The course provides a thorough introduction to a number of key texts from the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth century literature.
